Film Study: Andy Dalton

In his team's biggest game, Dalton came up roses.

ESPNU aired a rebroadcast of the Rose Bowl the other day, giving me a perfect opportunity to study the Bengals’ newest quarterback, Andy Dalton. When he hasn’t been riding bulls, sitting in race cars or creating controversies inside the Bengals organization, Chad Ochocinco has been doing the same. According to NFL.com, here’s what Ochocinco had [...]

Gruden (Jon) Loves Pryor

Terrelle-Pryor

PFT reported today that Jon (not Jay) Gruden is high on OSU QB Terrelle Pryor, who’ll be available in the supplemental draft. ”He was 31-4″ Gruden said, mentioning Pryor’s record as a starting quarterback. “He played good football in the big arena and played well in big games like the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl.  [...]

Everything to Prove: A.J. Green

A.J. Green is just one of many Bengals receivers with a lot to prove.

NFL.com has an interesting video of A.J. Green revisiting the glory of his younger days. Click here to see it.  

Gameday Playlist: You Wanna Rock?

The Jungle wouldn't be the same without GNR.

The Bengals are giving you a chance to turn Paul Brown Stadium into your personal Ipod (at least for a song) by letting you suggest gameday music for this season’s home games. It’s a pretty cool idea and an honest effort by some folks who occasionally fail in the fan-friendliness department.  Outside of Guns N [...]

The 2011 Bengals: Safeties

In the weeks since the completion of the NFL draft, I have been looking at the various position groups in an effort to shed light on where the team currently stands with their personnel and to foreshadow needed moves once free agency begins. You can see the history of these articles in my archives. Today, [...]

FoxSports: Mike Brown Not as Cheap as You Might Think

The Bengals biggest mistakes start up front. In the office.

Len Pasquarelli recently wrote an article that appeared on FoxSports.com suggesting that Bengals owner Mike Brown has spent more on his team’s payroll than most people realize. And I won’t argue that. With the exception of rookie deals, which always seem to get squeezed down to the last bloody penny, the Bengals have spent a [...]

Is Pryor The Best Of The Remaining QB Options?

Palmer and his "random beard" are not coming back according to the Ocho.

As a Bengals fan, observer, and talentless blogger, I’ve become a bit of a soothsayer.  Constant and vigilant, I’ve spent far too many waking hours reading the tea leaves and scattered chicken bones in NFL news cycles, trying to decipher the “thinking” happening behind the striped curtain. Occasionally, I do guess right. An oracle of [...]

Ludwig: Bengals Won’t Be Boring

Jay Gruden should bring some life into the Bengals offense.

Chick Ludwig offered up an outlook on the Cincinnati Bengals for The Sporting News and promised that this year’s team wouldn’t be boring. Well, that makes sense. I suppose train wrecks never are. Anyway, for me, the most interesting part of this article was a heaping portion of praise on second-year linebacker Roddrick Muckelroy, who Ludwig [...]

The 2011 Bengals: Cornerbacks

In the weeks since the completion of the NFL draft, I have been looking at the various position groups in an effort to shed light on where the team currently stands with their personnel and to foreshadow needed moves once free agency begins.  You can see the history of these articles in my archives.  Today, [...]

The Ocho Has Landed

Ocholanded

So the latest from the blogosphere is that our old pal, Chad Ochocinco has finally found the time in his busy jet-setting scheduled to make an appearance in the ‘Nati, and he’s trying to hook up with the boys for some players-only work-outs. Yes, the soccer fetish has subsided for now, and the urban cowboy [...]
